Folder for stuff in Zip root?

I think the answer is that certain stuff is just meant to be on the root directory, but I like to try and keep things neatly tucked away in specific folders if possible. So, here's my question: is there a folder where certain resources can go that normally work from the root directory inside a zip/pk3?

Specifically, I am trying to get the startup lumps for a Strife-style startup to work.

STARTUP0, STRTBOT, STRTLZ1, STRTLZ2, STRTPA1, STRTPB1, STRTPC1, STRTPD1

If these are in the root of the PK3, the startup works just fine. But I wanted to tuck them away neatly in a graphics folder or some such. However, that doesn't work. I tried the graphics, sprites and textures folder - nope. The only thing I have found that does work is using a filter folder:

filter/game-doom

and dumping them in the (effective) root of that folder.

Is that the only way to do this?

Essentially, yes. That's how the format was initially defined.

Fair enough. At least I know how it's done so I can stop searching for alternatives. Thanks.
